TSA Chief At Dulles Is Charged With DWI
TSA Chief At Dulles Is Charged With DWI

Agency Says Official Had Code Orange Duty
By Steven Ginsberg
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, January 2, 2004; Page B01


The chief of the Transportation Security Administration at Dulles International Airport was placed on administrative leave yesterday after being charged with drunken driving while he was on duty for a New Year's Eve Code Orange alert, officials said.

Acting federal security director Charles Brady was pulled over about 1 a.m. by a Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police officer who saw him driving erratically on Route 28 near Dulles, airport spokeswoman Tara Hamilton said.

Brady, 49, was taken to the Fairfax County jail, where he was booked at 3 a.m. He was released at 1 p.m. yesterday after being charged with driving while intoxicated, said spokesman Lt. Tyler Corey, who described Brady as "extremely cooperative" during his stay.

On a night considered at particular risk of terrorism, with extraordinary security actions in place across the country, Brady was supposed to be at his airport post until 2 a.m. TSA spokeswoman Jennifer Marty said that Brady should have been participating in a security exercise to ensure the safety of air travelers at that hour.

3. Note to TSA:
I WANT MY DAMNED HALF-BOTTLE OF TEQUILA BACK!!! You know -- oh, yes you do -- about my half-bottle that I had in my carryon baggage when I was departing McCarran Field in Las Vegas. "It smells dangerous," she said, as you confiscated it and also poured out my backup flask of Herradura Anejo right before my eyes... DAMN RIGHT IT'S DANGEROUS if you down the entire half-bottle in one swig, you idiots! :grr:

4. Cause for removing security clearance?
I've heard a DWI (DUI?) is one sure way to lose a federal security clearance.

5. ...
Clearly we are safer now that Saddam has been captured and the head of Dulles security is taking a booze cruise on Route 28.

Bush: I hate you and every last idiot in your administration. Get the hell out of Gore's house, you illiterate warmongering crook.

7. Let's see. He skips useless exercise on fake terror alert...
and goes out and gets drunk.

Can't have anybody thinking this was a useless exercise on a fake terror alert. QUICK, put him at Guantanamo,and deny him an attorney, because the attorney would probably report that this was a useless exercise on a fake terror alert.
